Thistle mantis

Blepharopsis mendica


This was in my son's bedroom on the wardrobe. It had flown in through the window. beautiful, feathery antennae unlike the green one that I photographed the day before. We moved it outside which is where it opened it's wings.

Thanks Argy Bee. I had just finished researching it and had found that it was a Thistle Mantis and was trying to work out how to change the ID
